Lionel Messi declared Argen­tina’s World Cup belatedly underway after inspiring Sunday night’s crucial 2-0 victory over Mexico.

Having been stunned by Saudi Arabia 2-1 in their opening game earlier in the week, Argentina knew a second successive defeat would have seen them knocked out of the tournament with a game to spare.

However, Messi’s sensational opener on 64 minutes and substi­tute Enzo Fernandez’s fine curling effort earned a 2-0 win and Lionel Scaloni’s men can secure a place in the last-16 by beating Poland in their final game on Wednesday.
